I can tie this back to the dead! I once watched Casablanca at the US Ambassador's home in Casablanca (spent summer of '86 "studying" in Marrakech at first US-Moroccan exchange program; saw James Brown and Jimmy Cliff in the Casablanca stadium that summer)and at the party before hand the student band played Dead cover tunes (I especially recall Bertha).

Funny thing was that during the world cup that year, we could see French games in color on big tv at compound in Marrakech but when Moroccan game started the "fuse" blew and had to watch on small B&W. (Beckenbauer's final year for Germany?) Damn colonialists.

who will be opening some shows for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers this summer (as will My Morning Jacket, Javis Crocker and others)

I think Stills should do a show of Mannassas in its entirety

Oh, I don't know about the Hockey biz, but I do recognize that the "jilted lover" biz is certainly appropos after Rick and Ilsa surfaced, right?

Not so fast or I'll link up the fist-i-cuffs with Telephone Tough Guy, and then she/he will see just how strange threads can get around here...or how about you riding around on a bicycle as the Burger King with that crazed vacant expression on your face (your know, like right now)? That's gotta be a top one for sure...

RingO--you know I'm JK, right?

Yeah where is TT?

I certainly never imagined my innocent Terrapin would have led to this debacle . . . oh and in my opinion the Finn Girls Hockey team would have done a better job today.

i am hoping that the Canada - Slovakia match is a more balanced game. Slovakia could surprise Canada, but it will probably be a Canada/USA gold medal game. (though the slovaks do have 10 or 11 nhl players on their squad)

I know you found out the "truth" but for my money he was always little NC's alter ego...hey, the kid's probably knee deep in diapers, eh?

Best wishes to you Noise Collector, and little noise maker, and his mom! And to your friend, TT too!

Sure, I guess ... Folks should realize, if I don't reply I don't mean to be rude, it usually just means I have given up trying to figure out what the thread's about.

Yes, I just meant that I was kidding because you were right--I use such short hand and abbreviations and then the inside jokes; it is often no doubt very difficult to understand what I am babbling about...I appreciate you even trying.

I'm trying - it all moves so fast and I'm usually back tracking, trying to 1) figure out what folks are talking about and 2) make note of things I should listen to, in order to have some hope of listening to it before the discussion moves on, which I usually don't.

Oh, now wait--it's not that bad...it started with Terrapin, went to the old Terrapin Bashing Thread (linked above), then, included diversions to skies, which led us to France, and WWII had been mentioned, so this got us to Vichy, and how could you not think of Casablanca, the movie, in that regard...then, we boys (yes, juvenile we be), with our penchant for role playing, of course inserted ourselves in the movie, and then amazingly, BD linked it back to the DEAD with his experiences in North Africa.

DEAD? Well, okay...lacking just a bit...

Ha--obviously even I got confused cause I forgot all the other stuff that went on with cush and dire and bd...damn, it was messy; the forum has been esp busy with DEAD interspersed with a great deal of chat room. But, to the degree it matters, you seem to be holding your own.
